Muscles for Charity project based at an English village dating back to the 11th century.

The village of Cretingham in Suffolk dates back to the 11th century with an entry in the 1086 Domesday Book. Dominating the village crossroads, the Church of St Peter dates from 1300 and is a grade II* listed building . The 400 year old village pub, Cretingham Bell, provided a suitable venue (and extremely well deserved pint of local produce) for the team as they debriefed the days activities.


Earlier in the day  11 Muscles for Charity volunteers arrived at Sasha’s rural home to assist  with a range of jobs, including; removing all the furniture from the lounge into the garden, fitting a new carpet, replacing the furniture; moving bedroom furniture, modifying the height of the master bed, adjusting the layout of another room to accommodate an electrically adjustable bed; constructing flat-pack kitchen storage shelving and fitting additional bookshelves.




Sasha’s heartfelt appreciation reflected the joy as a very talented seamstress, and a woman full of determination, with an incredible fighting spirit.






Appreciation from our beaming recipient, Sha,             “Gosh Phil!
Just a brilliant morning, a wonderful transformation, thanks so much for doing all the things I can no longer do and were annoying me and making life difficult.
Please say thank you so much to all of you. I will be making a donation to Macmillan
Sha “
